Also: "Hold on. I didn't consider this." (First used, to my knowledge, when Aaron set fire to the orange grove in Bryson Springs.)

Shit, didn't this come up in a recently posted AP as well? When was that? This is killing me...

"Let me speak my piece." Said by Mike during the new order campaign in a debate, and said for a while afterwards.

It's not always an Actual Play catchphrase.

Ross: "Buy my book...buy my book." From The Critic, I believe.

Tom says, "Oh, ME," in a super smarmy voice. I have no idea where that's from.

Ross and Tom will often say, "That's you, that is." I know it's from a British comedy sketch, but that's all I know.
I didn't come here to win. I came to make friends.

You need to see that sketch if you haven't.

Ross linked it once, I've seen it. I just can't remember who did it or where.

Occasional references to using "my BMX" or "Angelic hordes come forth!" are from Mitchell and Webb.

Yeah...


"What are their names Ross?"  Cody after meeting any NPC.

New World Campaign made me want to play 4e....then I played it...and quickly moved on.

"WE HAVE SUCH SIGHTS TO SHOW YOU"
Guessing this is from Hellraiser? Haven't seen those movies.

"...I've made a terrible mistake."
Cody used to say this a lot, unsure of the origin though I assume it's something pop culture.

Missing Cody? Do what I'm doing and relisten to New World in between current APs.  8)

Another classic Mike is "I shoot across the room."

I've been listening through New Arcadia and here are a few that have come up...

This isnt as bad as that time we stormed the Ilithid city.

"...I've made a terrible mistake." is probably a corruption of http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ive-made-a-huge-mistake

"I've made a terrible mistake" is from Arrested Development.

Also, I have missed you all as well.

Right now, I'm running New World games with my students at school and their player logic is just beautiful sometimes. One kid sold the entire party out to Thelonius because he "wanted to make it interesting."
I'm from Alaska. About Fifty miles south of Ankorage there's a little fishing town, maybe you've heard of it, it's called fuck your momma.

This has been talked about a few times with mixed awe and annoyance. Epic level D&D city assault that took two game sessions to complete.

My favorite part of it was Setherick having to deal with the devil, I think it was a pit fiend, that kept teleporting in and out of combat. His paladin(?) couldn't deal quite enough damage in the span of a single round to drop the enemy so it would teleport away, get healed, and come back later.
